Have you ever seen a Bobcat ?

If so, where? What State, County, or place?
I live 10 miles from Kentucky Lake, and Barkley Lake is within 25 miles of my house.

I live near 220,000 acres of Water, and 300,000 acres of Public Hunting Land.

one at AEDC many years ago and one on mt. roosevelt wma. the boy saw one in roane co. a couple of years ago.
experienced hunters know its not just a bushy white tail, its a big middle finger.

nothing makes a fish bigger than almost being caught

I have probably 50 in there past 30 years here in giles co
Saw 3 or 4 walking together last year while deer hunting. I had one that lived in front of my house for a while in a brush pile that actually had a red collar on. I told me the GW about it and I he guessed someone had tried to make a pet out of it.a good friend of mine used to trap and snare them

For twenty years I regularly hunted 3 states (Benton county MS, Fayette county TN & the confluence of 3 counties north of Hardy AR in southern MO) and in that 20 year span I saw 4-5 bobcats. Now since I bought my place in Haywood County on the Hatchie I see them WEEKLY! My place has PLENTY of them. They are nifty critters and I've been waiting for the post rut so I can bust one to be mounted without worry of hurting any chances of seeing a big buck. I'm figuring after about Dec 15 a putty tat IS goin down! ;\)

I've seen 5 or 6 in the woods. I killed one about 15 years ago that was creeping up behind me while I sat on a bucket at the corner of a field.

Scared me to death - I heard a twig snap behind me. I spun around, and the bobcat was doing a belly crawl at me and was about 25 feet away. I just swung the gun around and rolled him.

In hindsight, I think (hope) he would have stopped once he got closer and realized I wasn't a little rabbit or something. He was probably 3/4 of mature size.

All of them I've ever seen were in Shelby, Fayette, or Haywood counties.
I'm hungry and tired. Don't poke my belly.

I have seen many bobcats and killed several. I passed on two this year because I have two mounted and don't see any need of killing anymore. They are beautiful. What I don't ever see and would love to kill is a fox. In my 30+ years of hunting I have only seen two while hunting and never killed one.
